SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a number of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is offered with all cloud hosting we provide. With some of them, it's offered as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can include with a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section related to it in which you shall also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you shall be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same location. All the commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands that you can carry out along with a number of examples to give you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely through any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
